Magic result on the Gold Coast as Reelem in Ruby sells for $950,000
There were sensational scenes up on the Gold Coast earlier today after our Group 2 winner REELEM IN RUBY sold for a staggering $950,000 at the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale.
The daughter of Pierro was offered in foal to four-time Champion Sire Snitzel and was purchased by Yulong Stud, who will send her to be covered by their Blue Diamond-winning stallion Tagaloa later this year.
The astonishing $950,000 figure adds to the $600,000 in prizemoney that she won during her impressive race career – A huge return on the $90,000 that Chris & Michael Ward paid for her as a yearling at the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.
Reelem In Ruby gave her owners a huge thrill right from the word go, winning or finishing runner-up in nine of her first 10 career starts and finishing third on the other occasion.
That sequence culminated with an impressive victory in the Group 2 Hot Danish Stakes at Rosehill Gardens, where she defeated another Triple Crown Group winner, MOSS TRIP, who sold for $900,000 at last year’s Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale.
A big congratulations to all Reelem In Ruby’s owners and a huge thank you to all the team at Yarraman Park Stud, who presented her at auction is such terrific order. A big thank you also goes out to the teams at Snowden Racing and Muskoka Farm, as well as everyone who looked after her during her career on the track.
Attention now turns to our fellow Group winner MISSILE MANTRA, who is due to sell in foal to Capitalist during Thursday’s third and final day of the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale.
